Rossignol's patented air-honeycomb design reduces the weight of the ski and dramatically reduces swing weight (by nearly 30%). This significantly enhances maneuverability, giving the ski an incredibly ultra-light feel. The reduced density at the extremities also concentrates ski mass underfoot, allowing the tips to rise above the snow surface for truly effortless floatation. Reinforced with ABS skeleton for increased durability and enhanced torsional rigidity.
The perfect link between the Paulownia core and Air Tip. VAS technology ensures enhanced comfort when switching from one snow type to another by reducing vibrations. VAS technology makes the ski easier to control, more stable and so more accessible. VAS also gives a smoother more comfortable snow feel for even greater pleasure.
LIGHT WOOD CORE
The ultra-lightweight paulownia wood core construction reduces overall ski weight by 30% for enhanced agility, maneuverability, and control with no compromise to downhill performance.
CARBON ALLOY MATRIX
This brand-new fibre is ushering in a new era of high-efficiency materials. Combining an extremely lightweight design with high mechanical properties, the Carbon Alloy Matrix raises the ski's performance across the board, whether in terms of grip and versatility, precision and permissiveness, or stability and maneuverability. The Carbon Alloy Matrix is the result of a clever blend of Carbon fibre and Basalt fibre. Carbon provides boost, lightness and power transmission, while Basalt contributes its shock absorbing and stabilising properties. Boost your skiing for a white-knuckle experience!
POWDER TURN ROCKER
A profile with 50% standard camber in the center of the ski and 50% rocker at the tip and tail. The slight underfoot camber makes the skis grippy on groomed trails. The tip rocker makes its presence felt, giving better flotation in powder and paving the way for new experiences without tiring the skier. The tail rocker gives better steering and control.
The contents of a sidewall ski are protected and sealed in by a vertical material on the perimeter of the ski that is separate and distinct from the top material. The sidewall material is placed directly above the edge for additional reinforcement and support. This type of construction tends to have a more precise transmission of power due to the vertical nature of the construction process.
